Tooth decay is 100% preventable.
You can prevent this health problem by visiting with your dentist several times a year for an exam and cleaning. At home, you should be brushing twice a day, flossing once a day and using a fluoridated mouth wash.
According to the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention, tooth decay is one of the most chronic health conditions affecting people younger than 18.
At your next dental visit ask your dentist how healthy are your teeth?
